Coach K not interested in Nets job
INDIANAPOLIS — Mike Krzyzewski isn't interested in leaving Duke for the New Jersey Nets.
Krzyzewski says through a spokesman that he hasn't been contacted by the Nets and "wouldn't have any interest in the job."
The Bergen Record, citing anonymous sources, reported that incoming Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov would offer Krzyzewski $12 million to $15 million per season.
Krzyzewski says in a statement Monday that "you would be flattered if someone would offer you a job, but I would not be interested."
Krzyzewski, who is coaching Duke in the national championship game Monday night, has refuted rumors about the Nets before. Speaking after a victory against Maryland on Feb. 13, Krzyzewski joked that "no one's contacted me, and if they do, I think 'nyet' would be easy for me to say."
